Italian[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

Potentially from Vulgar Latin *trānsfrīcō (to rub across); Klein instead suggests the Italian has ultimate origin in Arabic تَفْرِيق(tafrīq, distribution, dispersion), reshaped to match the native prefix tra- (trans-). Cognate with Piedmontese tràfich/tràfic and Sicilian tràficu.
